Can Salmonella food poisoning be prevented?

Salmonella food poisoning can be prevented by using proper sanitation. Make sure that your food is cooked properly and with clean utensils. Avoid cross-contamination by washing your hands frequently while cooking, particularly when you're interacting with raw meats, eggs, or produce. Washing hands after using the washroom or before eating or preparing food is an excellent preventative measure as well. If you have pet birds or reptiles, you should wash your hands after handling them, as they are known carriers of Salmonella bacteria.
